Takoma Park Friends Meeting-Preparative gathered on 1/21/2024 in the library of the Takoma Park Presbyterian Church, following meeting for worship.

We heard and discussed queries from Baltimore Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice on Meetings for Worship.                

Tricia Crocker, treasurer, presented the treasurer’s report for the period 12/1/2023 to 1/21/2024 (attached).  We accepted the report.  

We heard that the agreement for use of the space in the Presbyterian Church for the period Dec. 1, 2023, to Nov. 30, 2024 had been approved by Adelphi Friends Meeting trustees and signed.  We heard that our budget for the current fiscal year had been approved by Adelphi Friends Meeting at their business meeting earlier this month.

We considered the request from BYM to submit a report on the spiritual state of the meeting.  We decided to hold a second hour on February 25 to discuss the queries.

We heard and approved these minutes.  We adjourned, to gather next on February 18, 2024, or at the call of the presiding clerk.
